Yeah it would work fine with gills. There is plenty of room to even add a piece of cardboard or something to keep from scarring the gills if that should be an issue.

The tool really does of good job of putting even pressure across the sights and they slide in and out readily.

That is a very desirable feature. How does it accomplish that versatility? Are the pusher jaws replaceable or reversible to get a different profile in contact with the sight? How does it differ from the one shown in Posts 13, 14, and 15?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Depends on who's turning the screws.

The "jaws" that grip the rear sight have the "straight" part on one half, and the "slanted" part on the other half. You choose the half of the jaws to match the rear sight on which you are working. No swapping out jaws (and losing the other set.)

That's a very clever design on first introduction. It makes me wonder why Glockmeister abandoned this in favor of the version they are selling now.

any problems putting the factory sights on? mine went around half way in and then stopped so the pusher squished the rear sight a bit and warped the site. They're cheap so I'll order another and try again

There is ANOTHER difference between old and new versions. The old version had sliding steel-rod-type handles at each end. The current version has the polymer flange-type handles seen in the current pictures. I like the old style better.

P.S. I add a clarification. The combination straight/slanted surface is on BOTH halves of the jaws, NOT one on each of the jaws. My first explanation did not make this clear. You position the rear sight within the matching parts of both jaws.

Sounds like we're gonna need more pictures!

Glockmeister should post them on their site....

One more question....are there (by chance) tapped holes on the bottom of the tool that would facilitate mounting it to a bench?

I'll guess you're talking about the polymer factory sights?

The Glock factory tool(s) have a screw on the top to keep the plastic sights from deforming or working up out of the dovetail while being pushed into the slide.

Glockmeister sight tool

It was nice until it locked up on me. I have used vise grips and etc and it will not move. I never used more than finger tightness. I can use it to put sights on but it is a pain in the ass.

If the sight tool you purchased is the latest model (has the plastic knobs on either side) and it is not functioning properly, you can contact Glockmeister at 1-888-456-2563 and we can arrange to repair your sight tool. Please let me know if you have any questions.
